A couple of passages from the book are given below:
“But until a person can say deeply and honestly, “I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday,” that person cannot say, “I choose otherwise.”
“It is one thing to make a mistake, and quite another thing not to admit it. People will forgive mistakes, because mistakes are usually of the mind, mistakes of judgment.
But people will not easily forgive the mistakes of the heart, the ill intention, the bad motives, the prideful justifying cover-up of the first mistake.”
The habits when applied will improve career growth, leadership skills, management skills, interpersonal skills and communication skills.
It is easily said but it is up to the readers to put the same in practice and yield the benefits for a better life. It is a wonderful and a life changing masterpiece available today in the book store.
GOOD read. Another GREAT resource on the subject is a piece titled The Hatchet Man’s Playbook. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Thank you for your feedback. Hatchet Man’s Playbook is also a great book about corporate culture and how professionals work to gain wealth and power. There are either winners or losers in the corporate backstabbing. Appreciate it!
